You dont have to tell me twice about entering a photo contest. I love the excuse to peruse old photos and relive favourites. Thankfully, there are some great contests out there, like Explore the Elements contest by Thomas Cook.
To enter is simple, publish four photographs, one for each of the elements – earth, air, fire, and water – then nominate five other bloggers to do the same.
“Represents the hard, solid objects of the earth Associated with stubbornness, collectiveness , physicality and gravity”
It is hard to explain the Rockies to someone. “A mountain range” doesn’t cut it, nor does “A park in the mountains”. The Rockies is a quintessential Canadian symbol of hardship, exploration, and conservation. From the very first National Park, to the daring modern adventures, Jasper and Banff National Parks are the perfect way to celebrate the meaning of Earth.
“Represents things that grow, expand, and enjoy freedom of movement Associated with will, elusiveness, evasiveness, benevolence, compassion, and wisdom”
There is a reason they say that there is always a breeze on the Prairies; there is something magical about the wide open sky. The Canadian Prairies are probably one of my favourite parts of this country, the crazy weather, the beautiful night skies, and thousands of kilometres for that breeze to whisper through.
“Represents the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world Associated with security, motivation, desire, intention, and an outgoing spirit”
Fire represents more than just an elements. Its about passion and spirit. These horses on the crest of a hill embodies the spirit of Montana. Hard work, ranch life, and big sky country are written in this photo.
“Represents the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world Associated with emotion, defensiveness, adaptability, flexibility, suppleness, and magnetism”
The island of Paros in Greece left me breathless. I took this one of my travel buddy Elizabeth while relaxing at the end of our trip. The endless water of an infinity pool and the Mediterranean Sea give a surreal feel.
Now I get to nominate others. Here are five bloggers (and great photographers) that I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with in the past.
Go forth nominees and spread creativity to the world with your great photos (I mean you could win a laptop, a smartphone, a new camera, or a £5,000 travel fund)
